What is Personal Injury Law?

Thousands of people are injured each year due to the negligence or carelessness of another party. Personal injury law, sometimes called tort law, protects individuals who are injured or harmed physically or emotionally because of another’s actions or inactions. 

Personal injuries are typically caused by someone else’s negligence, carelessness, recklessness, or intentional actions. In a successful personal injury action, the person who was injured is compensated by the one who was liable for the accident and injuries. 

Personal injury claims are made by the injured party seeking compensation for their injuries. In a personal injury claim, compensation is designed to cover any financial losses experienced because of the incident. The amount of compensation will depend upon the cause and seriousness of the injuries, the costs surrounding those injuries, and how those injuries have affected the victim’s life or may affect it in the future. 

If you or a loved one has suffered injuries in a personal injury accident, it is critical that you get the assistance of someone who understands the legal procedures and has the proven capability to get maximum compensation for their injured clients. The Law Office of Stanislav Ladnik is here to help.

Car Accidents

As the most populated city in the nation, New York City has the traffic to match. Our city ranks 4th for the worst traffic in the United States, and we have the accidents to show for it. Car accidents are the most common cause of serious injuries and fatalities in the country, and often, these accidents are caused by the negligence and carelessness of another. 

In New York, we are a no-fault state. This means that an injured party’s first line of compensation will be through their own insurance policy. But serious injuries can eat up a driver’s insurance benefits very quickly. When this is exhausted, the liable driver will be looked to for compensation. But what happens when the other driver denies accountability? Or doesn’t have insurance? What happens if your own insurer challenges your claim or tries to minimize the seriousness of your injuries? 

Unfortunately, these are not uncommon scenarios. With a skilled New York City car accident lawyer in your corner, you have an advocate who has seen it all and understands what it takes for an injured party to get fairly compensated. With the help of experienced legal representation, you may be compensated for any medical costs, lost wages, personal property, pain and suffering, or future costs as they apply to your injuries. Don’t leave that to chance, call now (347) 523-0025.


Truck Accidents

Unlike accidents between passenger cars, accidents involving commercial vehicles and trucks are uniquely dangerous. The size and weight alone of commercial trucks make them far more dangerous in any accident situation. A fully loaded commercial semi can weigh about 80,000 pounds and take twenty to forty percent greater distance to stop than a passenger vehicle. 

When these large commercial vehicles hit a passenger car, these accidents typically lead to more severe injuries, more significant medical costs, more property damage, and a greater chance of fatality. To make matters worse, in accidents involving large commercial trucks, liability may fall on any number of people, from the trucking company to the driver to the person who last worked on the vehicle. 

Large commercial trucking companies have equally large insurers, working diligently to put the blame on the victim. While any accident involving passenger vehicles is complicated enough, navigating one involving a large commercial enterprise can be a nightmare for the average injured party. Having a New York City personal injury attorney on your side can ensure that all points of liability are considered, all evidence is thoroughly investigated, and you get fairly compensated for your injuries.

The skilled truck accident lawyers at The Law Office of Stanislav Ladnik are experienced in handling New York personal injury cases. If you need the legal support to help resolve your personal injury claim with a positive verdict, call us today at (347) 523-0025.

Motorcycle Accidents

The motorcycle is a uniquely vulnerable vehicle and because of that, motorcycle riders often suffer far more serious injuries in an accident than passengers in similar car accidents. 80 percent of all motorcycle accidents nationally result in some form of injury to the rider, even in the most minor accidents. 

The design of a motorcycle provides for less protection, less visibility, and far more exposure to the rider in any accident, with a smaller stature, less weight, and less traction with the road. With only two tires on the pavement, the rider must maintain constant balance and momentum. One false move, and he or she is down. Without the protection of a steel cage around them, seat belts, and airbags, the rider is fully exposed to whatever obstacle they hit. 

Unfortunately, there is an inherent bias by the public and in the insurance industry against motorcycle riders. They are often seen as risk-takers who bring their own accidents and suffering upon themselves. They are also not covered under our no-fault insurance laws. Consequently, they may bring an immediate claim against the other driver. A talented New York personal injury attorney must work to overcome these biases and diligently prove the liability of the other driver to ensure that the injured rider gets properly and fairly compensated for their damages.


Slip and Fall Accidents

Premises liability, commonly called slip and fall accidents, may seem simple at first glance, but they are often extremely complicated. Property owners or “occupiers” have the legal obligation to keep their property safe and free from hazards for anyone who is legally on that property. This applies to business owners, private owners, and even governments and municipalities. But a slip and fall is not just a simple accident. The hallmark of a slip and fall claim is that the danger or hazard that caused the injuries was due to the owner’s negligence. 

New York state laws favor premises owners. Consequently, when someone is injured in a slip and fall accident, it must be thoroughly proven that the owner was negligent in their duty to keep their property safe. It is the injured party’s burden of proof that the danger caused their injuries, the owner of the property knew or should have known about the danger, and they still failed to remedy it or warn others about it. In the meantime, the owner’s insurer may also be working to point the blame back on the victim or diminish the claim. 

An experienced New York City personal injury lawyer understands the importance of an immediate and thorough investigation of any slip and fall accident and does this by :

  • preserving important evidence
  • obtaining eyewitness statements
  • securing surveillance video
  • determining if there had been any prior complaints, accidents, or building violations against the owner. 

At The Law Office of Stanislav Ladnik, our Brooklyn slip and fall lawyers diligently work to get justice for our clients after a dangerous slip and fall accident and secure the compensation they deserve for their injuries. To schedule a free consultation with accident attorney Stanislav Ladnik or another one of our experienced lawyers, you may contact us at (347) 523-0025.

Large professional staff with a very personal touch. I do appreciate Stanislav's help with my case. Without him I would not win $65,000. Thank you so much!

Medical Malpractice

Thousands of people each day entrust their healthcare and sometimes their very lives to physicians and healthcare providers. A patient must be able to trust that their providers are qualified, ethical, and operate under the highest standards of care. When this does not happen, and the patient is harmed, they may have the right to bring a medical malpractice claim against the provider. 

Medical malpractice, or medical negligence, is when a doctor or other healthcare provider does not follow established protocols or deviates from the standard of care they are required to provide. When the physician or provider deviates from these standards, it can have devastating consequences and affect the physical, emotional, and financial wellbeing of the patient. If an injury or fatality ensues, the provider can be legally liable for their actions. 

For those who have been harmed by a doctor or other healthcare provider who acted with negligence or carelessness, it is critical to get the assistance of an experienced personal injury attorney in New York City to ensure that the physician or provider is held accountable for your injuries, damages, and pain and suffering. If you are a family member whose loved one died as the result of a negligent physician, you may be entitled to a wrongful death claim. 

Unfortunately, negligent providers practice in and around New York City each day, harming innocent people. If you have been injured or harmed by one of these providers, The skilled lawyers from The Law Office of Stanislav Ladnik can help you hold them accountable with a medical malpractice claim.

Wrongful Death

The untimely death of a loved one is heartbreaking enough for family members but when it is caused by the negligence, recklessness, or intentional act of another, it is even more devastating. These preventable deaths leave family members with untold grief while also picking up the financial pieces left behind. In many cases, these family members are shouldering their loved one’s medical bills and other costs while struggling with the responsibilities and financial strain of a funeral and the lost financial support of their family member. 

Some surviving family members may be able to bring a wrongful death claim against the at-fault party to compensate for these costs and losses. Similar to a personal injury claim, a wrongful death claim can recover the same types of compensation that the deceased loved one would have had access to had he or she survived. 

When you have lost a loved one as a result of someone else’s negligent, recklessness, or intentional action, you may be entitled to a wrongful death claim. While no monetary compensation will ever make up for the death of a family member, wrongful death claims are designed to ease the financial burdens that were left behind. At The Law Office of Stanislav Ladnik, our experienced NYC personal injury attorneys are dedicated to those who have senselessly lost a loved one and to getting fair compensation that may help to ease that loss. To have a free consultation with Accident Attorney Stanislav Ladnik or one of our other personal injury attorneys in the team, call us now at (347) 523-0025.

This firm is very responsive and attentive to their client's needs. After Stanislav represented me, I realized that it was their expertise that helped me obtain excellent results.

What Can You Expect in Compensation From a Personal Injury Claim in New York?

Any accident that leaves you with injuries and other financial damages can be an extreme burden to both you and your family. Your injuries may leave you with extensive medical bills, prevent you from working, coping with emotional and physical pain, or even a debilitating disability.

A personal injury claim can entitle you to compensation for all these losses and financial burdens if someone else’s negligence factored into the accident. Tort law entitles an injured party to take legal action to make responsible individuals pay for their damages through an injury claim or lawsuit. 

In New York, an injured party may seek compensation for different types of damages, depending on the nature of the accident and the related injuries.

Special damages are those that reimburse an injured party for economic costs caused by the accident. These will include things such as:

Hospital costs and other medical bills

Transportation and childcare costs

Doctor fees

Prescription medication costs

Rehabilitation and therapy costs

Costs for any necessary medical equipment

Lost wages through the inability to work

Reimbursement for personal property loss

Future loss of wages resulting from the injuries

Any necessary in-home medical care

Future potential medical costs as they relate to the injuries

In addition to special economic damages, the victim may also be entitled to non-economic damages, or general damages. These compensate an injured victim for the effect that their injuries have had on their life, including:

Pain and suffering

Emotional distress

Mental anguish

Loss of enjoyment

Scarring and disfigurement


Reimbursement for personal property loss

 While general damages are less easily quantifiable, an experienced New York City personal injury attorney knows how these are quantified for your purposes and can help ensure that you get the benefit of this compensation should they apply to your claim. 

In some cases, a victim may be entitled to punitive damages in cases of egregious behavior by the liable party, but the courts are typically extremely conservative when making these awards.

Each personal injury claim is unique and each recovery will be based on many variables, including the type and severity of the injuries, the costs to treat those injuries, the cause and fault for the accident, how the injuries have impacted the victim, and how they may impact him or her in the future. 

While there are never any guarantees when it comes to compensation for damages, a highly experienced personal injury lawyer in New York City will understand all the avenues to get the compensation their client deserves. While this will typically begin with negotiation with the associated insurers, it may result in litigation. At The Law Office of Stanislav Ladnik, we never shy away from getting the maximum compensation available for our clients, even if it means fighting for it in court.
